This would have saved a lot of folks some big headaches back in the day.  Nice for those of you who have holes to fill or like the boxed presentation.

At least they didn't throw in one new one in each set to get us to buy them again :).

Good point.  I wonder why Hasbro decided not to screw us on these sets.

These are a reluctant pass for me. I like the inner box art. Maybe if they go on sale I'll get a set of each to keep boxed. I have a full set carded and a full set loose, plus some extra troops. So I don't really "need" these sets.

I'm in the same boat. I like them better on individual cards but the sets are kind of cool. If it goes on clearance I'll probably pick them up. But I don't really need them.

I would get it because the ones I have are carded....I have no extras to open.

I don't think Luke, C-3P0, and R2 are worth buying these entire packs for. Those are the ones I'm missing... maybe someday I'll get them on eBay. Or something.

Glad this set is coming out and glad I don't have to buy it.

Has anyone heard any reports other than the one on jd from a week or so ago about these being seen in a store?

I saw 2 of these a the Chino Hills, CA TRU a couple of days ago.  I didn't care too much about seeing them, but they are definitely out there.

Is Hasbro located in California? I swear you guys get EVERYTHING first. Lucky bastages!

I'd say the boats from China dock on the West Coast.  ;)

I found these sets yesterday in the Fresno CA TRU.  They're not bad in my opinion, though I can understand the complaints, especially if one already has all carded versions.  I may eventually pick up the set with the rebel trooper and Luke, as those are figures I would like, but it is somewhat tough to bite the $40 price tag...

I checked for these at lunch and of course our sh*tty East Coast TRU had nothing. They are literally 3 waves behind on their Legacy figures now, it is shameful.

I'm about ready to cut them out of The Loop.
